American barns offer horses a happier lifestyle providing a more herd-like environment than traditional stabling.  If this is your preferred option Scorpion have plenty of experience in delivering such structures.

These barns can offer plenty of benefits, from additional loose boxes, tack rooms, to storage facilities for hay, straw, feed etc.  They also provide protection from the weather, which improves the working conditions for staff and clients.

Essential criteria to be considered for such a barn is access to natural light and ventilation, alongside location of key services such as electricity, water and waste. If the building is to be used as a business it will be worthwhile looking at your access, driveways, parking, and lighting.

In addition you may consider large sliding doors, location of personnel doors, gable end vents and a ridge roof vent. A separate area for grooming, farrier, and vet with a safe spot for tying or cross-tying.  External windows will also offer extra ventilation and reduce stable boredom.

We are pleased to partner with recommended stable manufacturers such as Monach Equestrian who will assist in the planning of any internal layout.  Please refer to our case studies of previous projects completed and view our gallery.
